A new crisis looming at Istanbul’s new airport
Becoming fully operational in April, Istanbul`s new airport continues to be a symbol of improper planning, extravagance, and maladministration in Turkey.
A brand new crisis is appearing on the horizon for the Istanbul Airport, the city’s third, which has witnessed problems in many areas from its tender and privileges granted by the state to its construction, service quality, and flight safety.
The due date for the payment of the first instalment of credit taken for the construction of the new airport - Turkey’s highest amount - is drawing near. It is estimated that the new airport, under the existing conditions, is to garner a much lower number of passengers than its 95 million capacity.
